Why can’t we be friends in real life?

So almost everybody has some sort of social media, weather it’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, whatever it is! Or maybe its a BLOG! But what I’m talking about is mainly about Facebook, so I don’t have one but that doesn’t matter. Okay so I keep hearing people talking about how many friends on Facebook or Twitter they have! Why can’t we be friends in real life? Now I’m not saying its bad to have people who follow you or are your ‘friends’ on social media! But take a minute and think about how many friends you have in ‘real’ life! Now think about how much fun you could have with them, instead of being on Twitter or Facebook! This week try to focus more on your ‘real’ friends than on your electronic devices! Enjoy friendship! Work on your social life instead of social media! 🙂 Thanks for reading!

Devotion #5

So the other day I was reading in Matthew, and stumbled across some things that I thought would make a great lesson/devotion, for all of us. So when Jesus was calling His disciples to follow Him, here’s what happened. From Matthew 4:19-22
‘”Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “I will make you fishers of men.” At once they left their nets and followed Him.
Going on from there, he saw two brothers, James the son of Zebedee and his brother John. They were in a boat with there father Zebedee, preparing their nets. Jesus called to them, and immediately they left their father and followed Him.’
Now the key words that really popped out at me were, at once and immediately. They didn’t even hesitate. It says they immediately followed Him. They didn’t ask their father if they could go, they just went! it didn’t say, ‘a day later they found Jesus and followed Him. No! They went right then, no question! And that is what we need to do in our lives. We need to follow Him, what ever He says, and do it now!
I think the song above really sums it all up, we need to take the back seat and let God lead us!
